 The night before I left for PEI Michael and I went to one of our favorite "hanging out" spots - the Waltzing Weasel. I have previously raved about their chicken wings here on my blog.  Well, to add to our pleasure we received a couple of free samples of a new wheat beer called SHOCKTOP and what made it even MORE special it was served to us by my gorgeous daughter!  Yes folks, you too can sling beer with a degree in French!

But seriously, it was fun to watch her in action and get to take some candid photos - I don't get that opportunity very often.  I mean what could be a more perfect summer job - asking people if they want to sample a new beer....for FREE!  I don't think anyone said "no thanks!"  In fact, I said yes..... twice!! (even though you're only supposed to get ONE sample it pays to have a daughter in the beer business!) We also stole received two free SHOCKTOP glasses to take home!! Bonus!  Actually, the SHOCKTOP glasses are here in my PEI cupboard and they're working really well!

 Of course no night would be complete without a photo of Michael with a bevy of beauties! And they took our pictures too for "promotional purposes" but we weren't allowed to show the beer for the photos. Here in Canada companies are not allowed to show people actually drinking alcohol in their commercials for...alcohol! You have to use your imagination!
 Here's Kazi giving her spiel!

 She's very charming to strangers...but then she's paid well for it...hmmmm.....
 She's a beautiful girl and I love her very much. I'm not even worried about how well she's looking after our 18 year old cat in my absence....not much anyway...
Success!  Another sample sampled by a sampler!  But is he making a face??
I must confess the other reason we love the Waltzing Weasel so much.  They make the best apple dumpling with french vanilla icecream in the entire WORLD!! Michael and I are sharing one in this picture but sometimes we each have to get our own because we don't want to share!

The ultra good news is that Michael is finally flying out this Wednesday!! He had to cancel his Monday flight due to having a job interview.  The interview went well so now it's a game of "wait and see"! We really hope he gets the job as it's right up his alley but it will be sad also not to have him in PEI for the summer. He'll go back to London immediately if he gets the job but at least he'll have a few days here first!

  1. Kazi's so hot, even I'd buy beer from her!  Also, I don't trust that grey eye-browed dude.  I know the type!
    I'm glad your main-squeeze will be with you soon.  m.

  2. It appears the Waltzing Weasel only hires beautiful blonde haired women....hmmmmm.....what kind of place is this?? :)!

    I hope Michael gets the job, but at the same time I don't want you to be alone all summer!!  Perhaps I will come for a short stay, say the rest of July and August?  

    What do you think?

  7. You daughter is drop dead gorgeous. I know where she gets it from... :oD

    When will you know about Michael's pending arrival or whatever else? Remember, what's happening now the benefits your future plans are just stepping stones that feel like sacrifices. Trust me... I know this all too well. It's all good not matter what happens.
